'Elliot, A Soldier's Fugue' Calendar


January – February 2018


“Elliot, A Soldier’s Fugue”

by Quiara Alegría Hudes

Directed by Shishir Kurup.


A soldier, like his father and his father’s father, 19-year-old Elliot is back from Iraq with a Purple Heart. As he recovers from his injuries and decides whether to return to Iraq, he yearns for a truer connection with his father and considers his own limited options outside the military. Phoebe Hoban of The New York Times said “‘Elliot, A Soldier's Fugue’ is that rare and rewarding thing: a theater work that succeeds on every level, while creating something new. The playwright, Quiara Alegría Hudes, who has degrees in music (a bachelor's from Yale) and playwriting (a master’s from Brown), combines a lyrical ear with a sophisticated sense of structure to trace the legacy of war through three generations of a Puerto Rican family.” This Pulitzer Prize nominated play is the first in a trilogy that also includes “Water by the Spoonful” (a Pulitzer Prize winner) and “The Happiest Song Plays Last.”
